Though told in a somewhat cutesy, sock-hop style, Flipped works well as a film about character that entertains the tween/teen set without preaching at them.

I expected more from Rob Reiner.
January 5, 2013
A surprising-engaging and beautifully-told story about young romance.

Has my heart grown so cold and battle-scarred that I can't allow myself to be completely won over by Flipped, or is Flipped such a load of flavorless mush that there's not enough charm for me to embrace?

At times, the movie feels like a commercial for Wonder Bread, stretched to feature length.
January 11, 2011
The importance of understanding varying perspectives is always worth communicating, and Flipped, despite its cloying approach, manages to deliver this idea with a decent amount of sincerity intact.

If the feature doesn't latch on to the senses immediately with its sugared claws, it's a long, ugly 85 minutes of dreadful behavior to endure, waiting for an ending that never arrives.

I suppose some people may respond to this nostalgic ode to innocence and chastity, but I found it insufferable.

...if you want a wholesome, ultimately feel-good film about young love, this might be it. Or not.

Not perfect, but its aspirations are admirable, and its execution is surprisingly effective considering (or maybe because of) its unadulterated sentimentality.
October 8, 2010
The movie feels static, like a diorama of 60s life rather than a living, breathing story.
September 24, 2010
Rob Reiner seems to be aiming for a boomer audience, but it's a relentless exercise in nostalgia -- clothes, hair styles, cars, and doo-wop soundtrack -- that feels manipulative.
September 23, 2010
You'll flip for this gentle, clever movie. You are hereby forgiven for "North," Mr. Reiner.
September 20, 2010
Perfectly innocent, unexpectedly charming.

...takes what could have been a charming coming-of-age story and buries it beneath layers of cinematic overkill that push you away from the film when they should be drawing you in.
September 13, 2010
Flipped is Rob Reiner's best film in 18 years.
September 10, 2010
The latest from director Rob Reiner is a well-meaning mess that wants to tap into universal experiences of childhood and first love but bogs down in squirm-inducing banalities.
September 10, 2010
The kids provide an earnest emotional through line to a tiny story, and I sort of hope it kicks off a new mature period for Reiner as a filmmaker.
September 10, 2010
It makes sense that Flipped is based on a book, because what it has going for it is a charm -- the pleasure of hanging out with likable characters -- that the movies don't have much time for lately.
